I believe something among the line of
"Not-provided targets as arguments should produce a exit status code of 2,
but the converse is not true, therefore we cannot discriminate between
unprovided targets and targets that lead to an error condition."

fixing the build-arch issue at last.
Imagine a large red swirl here.
